* TheQuietOne: Kotarou's defining character trait, who speaks the least out of all the children in the daycare aside from Midori, who's only a baby and has yet to learn how to speak. When he ''does'' speak, it's usually blunts statements or times when he's particularly emotional. Otherwise, he communicates with nods, head shakes, and non-intelligible "ung" noises.

* TakeAThirdOption: Chapter 63 features a G-rated, non-romantic example. Ryu had to go on a class field trip, while the Chairwoman and Saikawa both had business elsewhere, leaving Kotaro alone. His friends (Kirin, Taka, the twins and even Midori) all invited him to stay in their houses. Kotaro chose none of them and went with Usaida instead.

This actually happens quite a few times, but most of the time it consists of a slight, vague grin. However, even that is enough to reveal more about her character past her strict front.

** Saikawa too. Normally very straight-faced, he showed Ryuichi his first smile in chapter 16, causing the latter to blush a little.

* TheComicallySerious: Saikawa, in spades:
--> '''Ryu:''' ''[while leaving to go to a movie]'' Okay, please take care of him, Saikawa-san.
--> '''Saikawa:''' ''[serious face]'' Understood. I promise to protect Kotarou-sama, even if it costs me my life.
--> '''Ryu:''' ''[surprised]'' Ah, no, I don't think you need to go that far...

* AmbiguouslyHuman: Played for laughs with Saikawa. When Ryuuichi the others were trying to guess what kind of house he lives in, Kamitani expected him to live in a coffin (like a vampire), while Usaida believes him to come from some sort of manufacturing company. In one omake, he agreed to go for a drink with Usaida, and was mistaken as a mannequin by the store patrons because he didn't move at all.

* BigBrotherInstinct:
** Ryuuichi for Kotarou.
** Kamitani more-or-less states that Ryuuichi dotes on his little brother a little too much, and the rest of the guys outright refer to it as a complex in jest.
* BigDamnHeroes: Kamitani has done this twice. Once when he stopped a cat from eating the chicks the kids were taking care of, another time in Kotaro's dream, where he was a dog spirit who saved Kotaro from being turned into a cat spirit.

** Inui as well. He once saved Kotarou from falling down the staircase, and another time rescued him from being hit by a soccer ball.



* CluelessChickMagnet: Both Ryuuichi and Kamitani the two most fawned over males within their class, and neither have picked up on it, even when a girl attempts to hand chocolates to Kamitani directly (he rejects the chocolate simply because he dislikes sweets). Though they hold no real negative feelings toward either, the rest of the males in the class are none too pleased with the excess attention they receive. Inversely, their classmate, Yuki Ushimaru, is the DudeMagnet of the class, but she only has eyes for Ryuuichi.

* ExtremeDoormat: Despite being hypercompetent in almost everything, Saikawa's sole purpose of existence is to dutifully serve the chairman and, by extension, the Kashima siblings. When he was assigned to take care of the toddlers in place of Usaida, he actually bowed down to the kids because "dealing with children" is one of the few things he's not really an expert at.

* HappilyMarried : Every kids' parents except for Taka's are shown to be very loving towards their spouses and children.



* KidsAreCruel: ''Completely averted.'' Ryuu's new school is wonderful, he's well-liked by his classmates, he quickly makes friends outside of the babysitting club, and the students are very sensitive about his situation. In fact, his close relationship with his little brother is something they see in a positive light, whereas in darker works he'd often get ridiculed for it. Though they do make comments on how they think the brothers are too close.


Added DiffLines:

* PlatonicLifePartners: Usaida is very close with Midori's mother, and had supported her throughout her pregnancy period because her husband was away.

** Don't try to run away with Kotarou, right in front of him either. He will chase you down with the determination of a buck.
